It does some of the best brunches in town in their French-styled bistro but it's the supper clubs that win the award for most romantic. Sit on one of the little wooden tables, nibble charcuterie and cheese and try some of the excellent wines on offer.

Glamorous and scintillating, Proud Cabaret offers a date night option filled with great food and dazzling night-time entertainment.
